When World War Z hit home video back in September, we were bummed to discover that the much-publicized alternate ending of the film, which was completely re-shot for the finished product, wasn't included with the release or even mentioned in any of the special features.

As Uncle Creepy wrote in his review of the World War Z Blu-ray / DVD combo pack, it was as if the whole thing never even existed.

For those that have been waiting for some sort of explanation, director Marc Forster has just offered one up to the folks over at Empire. They caught up with him at Poland's Camerimge Festival of Cinematography and pressed him for answers. "Basically, originally there was a third act that I thought didn't work," he explained. "As we were shooting, we were discussing it and rewriting and rewriting it."
